[WS] Discogs Album search + VA

I only want import one tag of discogs, not all tags. So, is it posible do it this with script only erase some lines of code? :slight_smile: this is the question

thank u dano!

You can erase lines, but I think there is a better way:
Just go to the end of the script and add this for each field that you don't want:

set "artist"
set "album"

That sets artist and album tag blank and they don't get tagged.

Success! Oddly, though, it doesn't want to connect for the Artist search, but will for the Release Number search.

Please give the exact script name and what you enter in the search field.

Got it... 'cogs was just going slow.

Ya know, it would be cool if we could get Mp3tag to pull the 'Style' as the 'Genre'... I don't know about y'all, but I use the style AS the genre in my re-tagging.

Have a look of my modification of this script. I made all Discogs-Styles and Discogs-Genres into the Genre tag.

perfect!! thx. :slight_smile:

Thank you Dano! But one question more. I added this code in "discogs Search by Album":


set "ALBUM"
set "ARTIST"
set "BAND"
set "YEAR"

set "GENRE"
set "STYLE"

set "TITLE"
set "TRACK"
set "COVER"

In this case, mp3Tag writes the tag to the following fields:

cover art

What could be the cause? with the code I wrote up the program should leave these fields blank. How do I fix this?

Thanks Dano!

set "TRACKS"
set "coverurl"

NOW WORK PERFECT! thank u Dano! :slight_smile:

I want to change the script to add credits and notes to the credit field and leave the lyrics field with only lyrics.

Before upgrading to the latest mp3tag, I was able to download lyrics in it's own field, and credits and notes went to its individual fields. However, as you may know, after the update no information would show up in the track listing.

I'm using the script you provided, but it deletes, understandable, my lyrics and adds the credit info.

Being i had collected a lot of lyrics, I would like to keep them and modify your script to add credits and notes to the credit file.


My scripts here don't change lyrics tag, you must be using a different script!

Got it... i think I see where i went wrong. The current script I'm using is discogs.pone 2.2...in v2.45b I had another script...everything was working great... but when i upgraded to the current version 2.46a, I could no longer get track listing under artist & albums..


Yet another Discogs update - they added some junk to release_id sell link. This fix works for me:


outputto "Discogs_Release_ID"
-findline "release_id="
-findinline "release_id="
+findline "link rel="canonical""
+findinline "/release/"

Didn't work for me... still pulling up blank data.

One more update on Discogs. :slight_smile:
Change all "gotoline 2" to "gotoline 3".

I would like to thank everyone who works on these scripts, they are such a huge time-saver. I had modified the discogs_Release_ID script once before to add credits and notes, however with the new change, I'm completely lost.

How can I fix the current "discogs_Release_ID_02" to add the fields "Discogs-Credits" and "Discogs-Notes" to my tags?

The scripts form discogs_extended_02.zip add these tags so just use the id script from there.

Perfect! It worked and we're back up!

I'm sorry Dano.
I try the "Search by Artist & Title" from "discogs_extended_02" but data remains empty.
Otherwise, "Search by Release ID" from "discogs_Release_ID_02" works well.
